Speaking of things Barack Obama has eaten for lunch, political reporters have taken to Twitter with the news that the President stopped in at Kenny's BBQ Smokehouse on Capitol Hill today for some ribs and to sort-of celebrate Father's Day. Not with his daughters, mind you, but with a couple members of the military and some barbers as part of a Health and Human Services program called "Fatherhood Buzz" to encourage better parenting.

But anyway, here's the important part: Politico reports that Obama "ordered a platter of steaming beef ribs, greens, black-eyed peas, rice, a corn muffin and a bottle of water." Thoughts on the pick? Leave 'em in the comments.
